Goals of Lifelong Learning Center

  • To be a Lifelong Learning Center that is recognized as a full-service, year-round destination providing a diverse array of meaningful experiences for people of all ages, backgrounds, skills, and interests through its programs, events, services, and facilities.
  • A multitude of resident partners will create a shared economy that supports state of the art programming in the arts and culture, health and wellness, natural science, outdoor recreation, and historic preservation.
  • With a variety of conference facilities and accommodations ranging from camping to residences and single guest rooms, Fort Worden allows visitors to design their stay around their needs and preferences.

The Fort Worden Lifelong Learning Center will remain a part of the Washington State Park System and retain all aspects of a public park facility including accessibility, reasonable and equitable pricing, and natural and cultural resource protection priorities.

  • Any future development of the Fort Worden Lifelong Learning Center will responsibly address and include effective management of the energy requirements of the site as a whole, safe and efficient circulation of people to and throughout the site, the protection of tranquil and personal experiences in the outdoors, and the preservation of the character of the site and its history.
